  • If you're on bed rest then there's clearly already a problem, if the spotting is a new issue that your doctor is unaware of I would definitely call it in.

  • yes. Since you're on bed rest i would be concerned about anything out of the normal. Its better to be safe than sorry.

  • Yes. Normally brown is ok because that means it's old blood. I got it a few times after we had sex or I had an exam. But if you're on bedrest then your doctor should know about it first thing in the morning. If anything changes, like it becomes heavy or turns red, get to L&D immediately.

  • Like the others said, since you are on bedrest I would give your doctor a call about this issue.
